Hi, I just bought an old Gresch on a whim. I know nothing about them. I think that the guitar in the link below is my guitar. Any info or thoughts are greatly appreciated!

That's a Pre-war Gretsch American Orchestra model 50 (unique to other models of the period by it's headstock inlay). I'd need to know the serial number to give you a firm model year, but it's late 30s. That 4-digit number will be stamped into the TIP of the headstock. Congrats on your new (old) guitar!
